Houston, We Have A Problem

People who work in public health have known for a long time that education is linked to health status. Those of us who worked in large public hospitals (Grady, Parkland, etc.) have seen how poverty and lack of education impact health. Education is on the national agenda and it will take time to have an impact on the problem. Other issues such as immigration will influence this effort. It makes no sense not to educate the children of immigrants, illegal or not. Even the Texans understand that. Meanwhile, medical care and private health insurance will have little impact on the status of health for the population as a whole.
